Met Gala 2016 is just hours away, and stars are already getting ready for one of the biggest nights in fashion. Gossip Cop takes a look at some celebrities prepping for the red carpet. See Met Gala photos below!

Kim Kardashian shared a shot on Instagram, but was sure to keep most of the details of her gown shrouded in secrecy. Kardashian’s glam squad began working in the wee hours of the night to get the reality star ready. “Midnight Met Prep,” Kardashian captioned a selfie that showed three people tending to her. Some details in her post were blacked out, ensuring her final look would not be revealed until later in the evening.

Hailee Steinfeld, who posted a throwback photo of herself and designer Prabal Gurung from the 2014 Met Gala, noted she already had a fashion snafu before Monday’s event. “I just got my nails done and I’ve already messed them up trying to open up a box of chocolate,” the actress joked on Instagram. Allison Williams appears to be keeping with this year’s theme, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” judging by the photo of the tech-inspired nails she posted on Instagram.

Mindy Kaling previewed on Instagram the Tory Burch gown and nail color she’ll be sporting at the big fashion event. Meanwhile, Kate Hudson posted a photo Monday morning of her pre-Met Gala breakfast, along with the caption, “Shall we begin? #MetGala2016.”

On Twitter, Lorde joked about the amount of grooming it takes for some to prepare for the event. She wrote, “faint sound on the upper east side this morning attributed to hundreds of pounds of body hair being waxed, shaved and trimmed #MetGala2016.” And Jennifer Hudson and Zoe Saldana both shared photos of their night before the Met Gala, which involved indulging in candy!
